Team Walgreens & Stance Relay for Life

22 Jun



Fight Back

Every year, Walgreens participates in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life in Rochester Hills, MI. This life-changing event gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. This year, Stance was apart of this wonderful event & joined the Walgreens team at Hart Middle School.

This organized, overnight community fundraiser consisted of teams of people camping around a school track. Members of each team took turns walking around the track. The family-friendly environment also had food, games & activities such as country line dance lessons, frozen t-shirt contest, and karaoke.

After dark, the Luminaria Ceremony took place to remember people lost to cancer, honor people who have fought cancer in the past, and support those whose fight continues. Candles were lit inside of personalized bags and were placed around the Relay track as glowing tributes to those who’ve been affected by cancer.

At this year’s event, 42 teams and over 486 people participated to raise over $120,000! Thank you to everyone who came out to support this wonderful event.
